Work will be performed in Apopka, Florida, with an estimated completion date of May 1, 2020. Fiscal 2010 foreign military sales funds in the amount of $9,491,066 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Michigan, is the contracting activity, the statement added.

Morocco has purchased 220 Abrams tanks refurbished for the Kingdom through the US Army’s Excess Defense Articles (EDA) program. The tanks, which are a mix of the M1A1 and M1A2 model, are colored with camouflage designed specifically for Morocco.

The Abrams tank is the third-generation main battle tank and it is reportedly stated that it is a more developed version of the fighter craft that fits under the last plan, level of major equipment of the Royal Armed Forces.
